What we do looks like this!
How it works: Come along for 12:00pm and meet folk in the side room to the left of the main bar. At 12:10 everyone who is going to run something pitches what it is they will run, up to how many players can be accommodated, and what the game is about.
It might be GM led or it might be more of a story game with the expectation that everyone contribute equally. When this is complete everyone says what it is they want to play.
At 12:15 your group grabs a table and starts playing! The slot finishes by 4:15pm and the pitching process then repeats for the evening slot. We'll need to leave our dedicated rooms after 8pm, but we can carry on socialising in the main bar area.
Normally, we have Newcomers choice, but as a Christmas gift to our regulars we're switching it up just this once so that in the first slot the veterans get first choice. We'll start with those folk who came to the first indiemeet three years ago and work forward until everyone's got a game.
Newcomer's first choice will resume in January!
THE FIRST AND ONLY LONDON INDIE DARLING AWARDS
At the beginning of the second slot (4:15pm), we'll also be presenting the London Indie Darling Awards. These light-hearted awards will go to honour and remember some of the stuff that we've loved over the last year.
We will have both side rooms and back rooms available for the second slot (from 4pm), but only the side room for the first slot. This means we will likely be quite crowded for the first slot, but for the first slot only. We will have loads of space for the second slot.
